the strategic plan, a statistical sample of 12 experts was used as members of the research
strategic council. Besides, library approaches, such as articles, books, magazines, and the
Internet were used to collect the theoretical foundations and background of the research.
In the quantitative section, the matrices of strategic studies, including the Internal Factor
Evaluation (IFE) Matrix and External Factor Evaluation (EFE) Matrix and Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) were used for ranking opinions and strategies in Expert Choice
and SPSS software for data analysis.
